RESOURCE LESSONS

TIELC curriculum includes programmes that develop all children’s corporal, mental, and emotional aspects. The resource lessons are instructor guided where teachers follow a lesson plan that takes into consideration the interests of the child and is geared towards specific goals. This means that children will be exposed to activities that allow them to fulfill a learning objective based on their developmental stage.

Czech as a second language

Children who attend this lessons become more perceptive and sensitive to the beauty of the words that surrounds them. They are able to feel and hear more and live through a wider range of experiences than children who are not exposed to language education.

According to the method established by Jan Amos Komensky, the Czech lessons will be fun and interactive. The lessons will be geared toward vocabulary expansion, natural speech, understanding, and being understood in Czech language. The children will acquire grammar naturally through language play.

Art and crafts

Art lessons are a great opportunity for children to express themselves and develop their creativity by providing visual, tactile and sensory experiences. They will explore many artistic mediums such as clay, sand, even wax.

The principle of these lessons is to set no limits to children’s imagination, encouraging them to bring to life their creative ideas. Children will also learn to appreciate art and its history and learn how to make thoughtful judgements and aesthetic decisions through a specially designed programme of study.

Music and dance

Dancing is more than just fun. It help little children to release the stress, which is very improtant, since children just as adults may accomulate negative emotions during the day and have to learn how to get rid of them in a right way. When dancing, kids learn how to catch the music rythm, follow the music and express their feelings through motion. Finally, regular dance lessons form beautiful gait and correct posture.

Dance is such a non-traumatic activity that we recommend it to all children who are three years old or older. We hold ballet lessons twice a week led by Katarina Knocikova, graduate of the Dance Academy and a talented teacher. When kids dance together they find it easier to communicate with one another and become closer to one another thanks to the relaxing atmosphere of the classroom, fun and the great job that the teacher does.
